Description of 41-59 Battersea Park Road
41-59 Battersea Park Road is a mixed-use development in Nine Elms, London SW8.
2016 December - Mayor of London planning permission gives the green light for the redevelopment, following a unanimous approval by Wandsworth Planning Committee.
Designed by Assael Architecture the development sits next to the new Linear Park, Prospect Park and the entrance to the proposed Battersea underground station, one of the new stops on the Northern Line extension.
The mixed-use development will replace the Booker Wholesale Warehouse and a BMW Garage to deliver 307 new homes in a collection of buildings ranging from five to 18 storeys.
The ground floor accommodation will be for affordable business space, and food and beverage uses. The 31,000 sq ft of incubator-style office space targets SMEs, including creative start-ups.
Pete Ladhams, Director at Assael Architecture, said in December 2016: “We’ve had overwhelming support and encouragement for the quality of design from officers, members and the general public. The development offers a rare opportunity to stitch together the Nine Elms Regeneration Masterplan with the American Embassy at its core and the Grade I listed Battersea Power Station development. Our aim from the outset was to link with adjacent developments to create a new business hub, offering fully fitted out affordable business space with capped rents aimed at local creative start-ups like ourselves. We hope this development will become a stepping stone for these businesses with aspirations to follow in Apple’s footsteps in becoming part of the iconic Battersea Power Station development.”
